One Word in Blue Envelope
This is a public call by the Museum of Corruption (MoC) to international artists in any media to participate in the creation of the virtual collection of corruption praxis. MoC is initiated by ZMUC (Serbia), Open Hub (Romania) and NGO Laboratory of Culture Research (Ukraine) and is supported by Tandem for Culture and Open Society Foundation Serbia.
We need you to intervene in the field of corruption, we found it increasingly important to react, especially now when our freedoms are being threatened either by the government or by the virus.
In order to thoroughly research the phenomenology of corruption and its effect, six Museum departments have been established: the corruption of the time, language and culture, following by the corruption of data, personality and institution.
Your works will be published in an Illustrated Guide through Corruption for Beginners, in order to make “less visible” agents of corruption visible and hopefully, ridiculous. Texts and illustrations that will appear in this Guide should depict and problematize the corruption of time, language, data, personality, culture and institution as civilization’s attainments.
Selected artworks will be credited and artists honorably mentioned on our web site. The production costs of selected new artworks will be covered.
International jury – Viorica Badea, sociologist; Andrii Tuzhykov, technology enthusiast; Goran Denić, visual artist; will select artworks for the collection.
There is a possibility for artists in residency program at Tara national park, Western Serbia if the outcomes of the COVID 19 pandemic allow participants to travel to the destination.
Dear friends and colleagues, we need your help in creating Illustrated Guide through Corruption for Beginners.
Please send works until June 15th, 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org in any of the following formats:
